Bieudron power station
The Bieudron power station forms part of the Cleuson-Dixence complex. It was built jointly by Grande Dixence SA and EOS between 1993 and 1998, at a cost of CHF 1.3 billion, to increase the generating capacity of the Grande Dixence complex. The Bieudron power station alone holds three world records, for the height of its head (1883 m), the output of each Pelton turbine (3 x 423 MW) and the output per pole of the generators (35.7 MVA).
